WTB: Rack for Case

I know this gets asked a bunch, but I'm looking to buy a rack for my 500. I don't need a case for it; I plan on mounting a Givi Monokey plate to it to use existing bags I have on my VFR for commuting for work. I don't care what brand the rack is so long as it's sturdy.

You want a rack that fits the 500 but will swap between it and a VFR?
That makes no sense.

There's no Givi rack for the EX currently available.

If you want a top box that will swap between Givi racks....
Well, you you're gonna have to scour ebay for the rack for EX and a plate.
Any box can be mounted to a Givi plate.

What doesn't make sense? I have Givi Monokey racks on my VFR. I plan on mounting a Givi Monokey plate to whatever rack I put on the EX500. At that point, I can mount the existing bags I've got on either bike as needed. I'm not sure where you got the idea that I'm trying to get a rack that will switch between bikes.

I know Givi isn't currently (and thus never will) making a mounting kit for the EX500, but something like a Renntec rack would allow me to put a monokey plate on the rack, giving me the ability to put the bags I already have on the bike.

It's for a 2nd gen, hopefully that's what you ride
